Harry Potter - Join The Adventure Norm Lanier-Publisher, Daily Disney Photo.com
Last December (12.19.16) I wrote a blogpost: “2016 - A Year Of Challenge.” Little did I know that I’d find the same title appropriate for 2017. I am happy to begin 2018 today, as I’ve felt moved by uncertainty last year…
I’m reminded of the invisible map given to Harry Potter. There Harry is, in a dark labyrinth. The map is blank until he makes a decision. Eureka. With this choice, the map lights up to guide him, to support him on his journey.
I understand from my spiritual community that the new metaphysical rules resemble J.K. Rowling’s creative and spiritual musings.

What are YOUR possibilities right now? Do you wish to redefine something about yourself? You could use the state of mindfulness or meditation to explore your constructive desires. You could then extract small, manageable, achievable goals to reach your vision of the person you wish to become. These would be small steps, which in the aggregate will produce desirable change.
In the magic of an “eleven” year - a master number (2+1+8=11), I borrow the words of Merlin to suggest that you use your wand to play and create well. Choose fun over fear, love over trepidation, and move in the direction of your higher potentials. Let’s create a thrilling
Speak to you on January 15th.
